Answering all your questions about independent contractor agreements in Swaziland

You may have questions. We’re here to answer them. Below, you’ll learn all the extra stuff you should probably know before putting together an independent contractor agreement for Swaziland.

Why do I need an independent contractor agreement in Swaziland?

An independent contractor agreement is a document that outlines the terms of your relationship with a contractor. They require you and a contractor to get on the same page before you begin working together, leaving little room for confusion once the contract begins. Additionally, they help protect your company’s legal interests.

Swaziland legally defines an independent contractor as a worker who is not subject to supervision or instruction regarding the manner in which they complete their work from the hiring company. To help protect your company from expensive employee misclassification penalties, recognizing the independent contractor’s autonomy in their working process is paramount. Beyond preventing misclassification liability, independent contractor agreements protect you and the contractor from being taken advantage of by the other party. Verbal agreements leave room for either party to backtrack on the initial agreement or attempt to change the terms unilaterally. A written agreement signed by both parties helps ensure you receive the work you hired the contractor to complete and they receive the compensation you agreed on.

In short, it’s always best to have a written independent contractor agreement. This investment at the beginning of your partnership is worth the legal protection of your company and the contractor’s rights.

What do contractor agreements in Swaziland typically need to have?

Every contractor agreement in Swaziland (and, the rest of the world) can be broken up into two parts:

  • Contract-specific variables: This includes things like scope of work, rate, and deadline. They’re the project-specific variables that you’ll include with each contract, and are totally dependent on what type of work you’re hiring a contractor to do.
  • Everything else: Besides things like scope and deadline, every independent contractor agreement in Swaziland should follow a similar structure. If you want to grab your own contract with a compliant structure for Swaziland, sign up to Thera
What makes contractors different from employees in Swaziland?

If your company could benefit from a simpler, more cost-effective hiring process, working with independent contractors may be right for you. Before you start drafting your first agreement, though, you should understand the major differences between contractors and employees.

Here are a few of the key things that make contractors different from employees in Swaziland:

  • Contractors can set their own schedules
  • Contractors can work with their own software and tools
  • Contractors are solely responsible for paying their taxes
  • Contractors can work for other clients
  • Contractors rarely receive benefits, like health insurance*

Working as an independent contractor is appealing to many professionals for obvious reasons. It allows them more autonomy in their career because they complete work on their schedule and are free to pursue additional work that intrigues them. Working with independent contractors is an attractive option for many companies because it allows them to get work done without expending resources to oversee the process. If this is right for your company, Thera can help you get started with a compliant agreement.
